Among the many venues Peters has sold out are Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall, LA’s Nokia Theatre, the Sydney Opera House and back-to-back nights at London’s famed O-2 Arena.

As a result, Peters is regular on the Forbes List of top ten highest earning comics, ranking as high as number three in 2013. His comedy has generated over 120 million views on YouTube.
Peters has transitioned into both small and big screens, having recently been a judge alongside Roseanne Barr and Keenan Ivory Wayans for NBC’s reboot of Last Comic Standing, and lending his voice to the animated feature, Ribbit, and to numerous episodes of the iconic animated Fox television show Family Guy and Bob’s Burgers. He was also awarded a Gemini Award, Canada’s version of the Emmy, for hosting the country’s Juno Awards Show. Other notable film roles include the recent Jon Favreau directed indie smash hit Chef, the 2011 sci-fi movie Source Code, alongside Jake Gyllenhaal, the Canadian ice hockey hit Breakaway, where he also served as Executive Producer and the Eva Mendes indie, Girl in Progress alongside Mendes and Patricia Arquette.

The new and exciting face of comedy is George Perez. Growing up in the mean streets of Orange County, George knew he was destined to make people laugh since the early age of 13 years old; performing for his family and now performing at the top comedy circuits across the nation. Along with being one of the brightest and hilarious comics around George is an accomplished actor, screenwriter and proud father of four children.
Evolving Hollywood.com calls George Perez, “the freshest face in comedy with a comedic range that can compete with the best of them.” (2014). George uses his own life experiences as his anecdote to every joke. His poise and familiarity with growing up in the streets, becoming a young father, and tearing down every stereotype has evolved George as a fresh comic making light of his tragedies and growth. It also allows the audience to relate to him on multiple levels; allowing him to cross over with all audiences through original storytelling and authenticity.
George Perez has appeared on numerous television shows, such as Comedy Central, SHOWTIME, PAYASO COMEDY SLAM, LATV Live, Loco Comedy Jam, Mind of Mencia, Master P’s Black Superman and starred in three episodes of MTV's Yo Momma, where he got to use his sly wit and quick thinking to win his episode. After working with Wilmer Valderama, he was asked to return for the Best of LA episode as a final competitor with MTV’s highest ratings. Other appearances include Fox’s Laugh TV and the anticipated comedy film entitled “Taco Shop” from the Producers of Selena.
